Join us for our second program celebrating the work of literary translators featuring Edward Gauvin, translator of comics and graphic novels and Susan Harris, editor at Words Without Borders. Edward Gavin has translated over 300 graphic novels from French and will be reflecting on the medium’s challenges over the last fifteen years, the joys of the genre and the formal challenges of fitting dialogue in speech balloons and reinventing onomatopoeic sound effects like “BAM!” or “OUCH!” Edward and Susan will discuss working as a translator, a profession struggling for greater visibility, in comics, a field still fighting for cultural legitimacy
